  • Pintech CKV head bounce

    Pintech converted my VK-10 kick to a CKV (looks more like a KD120) but my son is complaining that he is getting too much head bounce and resulting double triggering with a DW7000 single pedal. I've tried adjusting head tension as well as pedal spring tension but not sure which way to crank them. Any ideas? I hesitate to adjust the TD-10 retrigcancel etc, since I can actually see the second bounce when he plays. Thanks...

    Raise the mask time to 16.

      Thanks szvook. I also had to raise the RetrigCancel to 12 to settle it down - now we'll see if missed beats are a problem. It is a fine line with the Pintechs. Maybe there will be a B-stock sale on KD120's at Zzounds as well

        With the RetrigCancel set that high you might miss some hits. Lower it and try the mask time to 16 first and see if that might help before you go for the KD120.

        Good luck

          I had same problem with mine.

          Setting the mesh head tension real low - 1/4 to 1/2 crank up from no tension on each lug - should solve the problem.

          The beater will bury and no double hits.

          Keeping the trigger parameters at standard settings should be fine. Messing with these the wrong way might cause missed hits on quick doubles.

            I had the same trouble but it is more than fine now.

              Thanks everyone....got it. Loosening the head much more than I would have thought practical did the trick, thanks again Ginger! My son is happy. I guess the new mesh needs to be "broken in" on the kick. Everyone says that Pintech heads are bouncier than Roland and this certainly proves it. Mechanically, this unit is a very sturdy product otherwise and can be recommended (far better than the VK-10).

              BTW, anyone need a Pintech AX13S snare? I have the 14 inch one - about 4 months old and no marks. I'm expecting that "B-stock" PD-120 next week from Zzounds.com. I'll let it go very reasonably to a member of the group. If interested, e-mail me at [email protected] -Howard

                Drummersdad,
                Your son is going to LOVE his new Pd120. It works so well with Roland modules. The sensitivity is amazing!

                  Hey Acidbran,

                  I don't know Al Alessi - yet! I will try to get to your gig, though. If I make it there, I will definitely say hello! Congrats on the gig, too.

                    Sometimes with the tension set looser, a spike might come through and that is when you have to use the mask time more. This more noticeable when plying double bass.
